We didn't have much trouble finding this hotel - thanks to the directions given by other reviewers! (and some very helpful Amsterdammers). It only takes about 15 minutes to get there by train and tram.
The hotel is almost brand new and the interior is very modern and fashionable. The room was very clean and we had a huge bed. I wasn't impressed that the bathroom had a see-through window, though?!? The toilet was also separate. (Thank goodness, but why???). Our room faced the road and the traffic from the road was quite noisy which sometimes made it difficult to sleep.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful. We were very pleased that we were able to leave our luggage behind the desk before we checked in and after we checked out to save us carrying them around town.
Breakfast was good, but the tables were not always cleared away. We ate at the hotel two nights. The first night we were kept waiting a very long time for our food. However, when it came it was worth waiting for. The waiter then apologised for our wait, told us it was because of a party, and gave us a free dessert. (which was also delicious). We enjoyed the meal so much we went back the next night. This time, we were kept waiting again. Also, I asked for my steak to be medium to well done and it came out red and dripping with blood, which I wasn't so happy about.
The Skyy bar on the tenth floor was very nice and you have a good view of the surrounding area (which isn't very pretty, but looks good at night!).
We were a bit hesitant about booking this hotel because it was out of town. However, it is only about 5 minutes walk to a tram (along a main road and past a building site) and then about a 10 minute journey into the centre of Amsterdam. This wasn't really a problem for us, but I wouldn't recommend it for elderly people or those who can't walk very far. I would recommend this hotel to other people and would choose to stay there again (as long as it didn't get too much more expensive) as it was very clean and modern and it was easy to get to the town or the airport from the hotel.
